AIR NEWS is wholly Australian owned and operated, delivering independently produced radio news services specifically for Australian audiences.



Australian Independent Radio News, known colloquially as AIR News, delivers News, Sport and ancilliary services to Radio stations across Australia.

AIR News requires no Satellite or landline facilities to be installed, just a decent broadband Internet connection.

The service operates 7 days a week with news and sport on the hour, specifically designed for the professional radio market and is suitable for Commercial, Community and Internet based Radio Stations.

The news packages are delivered to stations just prior to the hour via the Internet, and automatically slotted into Radio playout software ready to air when it suits the station.

No more "timing out" to the top of the hour in order to hear the latest news, AIR News moves on air when you want it to.

All packages are produced as raw audio, therefore there is no "Intro Theme", which means affiliate stations are free to develop their own opener to suit the image of the station.

In order to commence as an affiliate of the AIR News network, there is a 12 month service agreement which needs to be completed following your acceptance of a quote for delivery to your station. There is also a requirement to agree to the standard terms and conditions. To read these click here.

It usually takes a couple of weeks to install the AIR news service, although we have managed it in two days dealing with a tech-savvy radio station. There is automated download software to be installed at the radio station which requires scripting and testing, so it is worthwhile having someone with a reasonable IT brain on hand to assist with your installation.
